Easy Chicken Fajitas Recipe!
The perfect weeknight meal, these Chicken Fajitas only take 30 minutes to cook! Perfectly seared chicken with bell peppers and onions all made in one pan!


  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil divided
  • 2 lime
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1½ teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts 2 to 3 pieces
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 3 bell peppers seeded and sliced into strips

To serve

  • tortillas
  • sour cream
  • lime wedges


  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of oil and the zest and juice of the limes. Add the cumin, chili powder, salt, garlic powder, oregano, paprika, and black pepper. Stir to form a paste. Add the chicken breasts and toss to coat.
  2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until brown on both sides and cooked through, about 8 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and let rest.
  3. Add the onion. Cook, stirring frequently until starting to soften, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the bell peppers. Cook, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  5. While peppers cook, slice the chicken breasts into thin strips. Stir the chicken into the vegetable mixture. (If your chicken was undercooked when sliced, cook for a few minutes.) Remove from the heat and serve immediately with tortillas and toppings.
